Getting a restful night’s sleep can be a challenge if you’re not sleeping on the right kind of mattress. The following information about three popular types of mattresses can help you choose the right bed for your particular needs.

Innerspring Mattress

Innerspring mattresses are available in a wide variety of styles with different types of steel coil systems, levels of firmness and padding options. A person with a heavier body weight or mobility issues often finds it easier to get in and out of bed when using a firm innerspring mattress. If you suffer from upper or lower back pain, consider purchasing this type of mattress with a built-in gel or memory foam padded topper.

When buying an innerspring mattress, a good rule of thumb to remember is the number of coils correlates to its level of support. Typically, more coils offer more support for the body.

Memory Foam Mattress

If you are a light sleeper, a memory foam, or visco elastic foam, mattress is a good choice because it absorbs movement. This means you’ll no longer awaken every time your spouse tosses and turns or gets out of bed. Since memory foam is designed to cradle the body and reduce pressure on joints, this is also a very good choice if you suffer from muscle pain or have trouble getting comfortable in bed.

Keep in mind that memory foam is temperature sensitive so it may become warm from your body heat.

Gel Bed Mattress

If you need a cooler sleep than a memory foam mattress can provide, a gel mattress might be the perfect choice because it offers a different type of body heat dissipation. Gel is added to the foam, allowing sleepers to experience the comfort and benefits of foam, such as back and joint support, while the mattress stays cooler. This mattress conforms to the shape of your body, cradling your tired muscles.

Choosing the right kind of mattress for your particular sleep habits and physical needs is crucial when the goal is to get a good night’s sleep. A high-quality mattress can help you avoid waking up to aches and pains in the morning.
